Yeah, but when you're in a movie and you're surrounded by talent such as Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Telly Savalas, and Charles Bronson, that's some pretty good acting talent right there.
The only footballer-turned-actor that may have been able to pull that off is Fred Dryer.

What are y'all talking about, any movie guru worth his salt will tell you that the former Oakland Raider, John Matuszak as "Sloth" in Goonies was the greatest ex-football acting role of all time. Let us not forget those classic scenes from Little House on The Prairie by Merlin Olsen.

As far as thespian goes, I heard OJ didn't eat no....

Don't forget his moving portrayal of a caveman in the epic "Caveman" starring Ringo Starr, Dennis Quaid and Shelley Long. Although Ringo made out pretty well, I think thats where he met Barbara Bach.

Why yes, I stand corrected. Matuszak in Caveman was indeed excellent.
Didn't Ringo wake up with a giant bug humping his face in that movie?
I also vaguely remember Dick Butkus making an appearance on the 6 million dollar man.

I also remember Butkis hawking grills that burn newspaper.

I will admit that Terry Bradshaw did make me laugh occasionally in Cannonball Run

him and Mel Tillis driving around shi*faced for the whole movie. priceless. As far as sports cameos goes, Kareem abdul Jabbar grabbing the little kid in Airplane is one of the funniest things ever

That was funny, when they drug Kareem out and he was wearing his goggles and shorts.
"Excuse me ma'am, I speak jive." Classic movie.
